The show lasts around 2 hours, with several different acts, sone involving animals (elephant, camels, horses) and some not. Some were better than others, overall a good show though. As mentioned it is all in Hungarian (don't see why people would expect anything else) but you don't need to understand what is being said to enjoy the show. Tickets were around HUF 3000 which is pretty reasonable.

First time at a circus for many years. Traditional style with horses, camels & an elepant as well as clowns and acrobats.
Its not Circle solei which has set impossibly high expectations - it's a great fun though as an old style circus - rare these days.

This is a real old fashion circus with people and animals performing. As we don't speak Hungarian, we didn't understand what was said but in a circus everything is about watching the show. There was a live band that made the experience even better.

A good show but I had no idea there would be as many animals involved, and I am very against animals in circuses. Previous reviews we read on TA said that there were just dogs and horses - not true. However if you like that sort of thing, then you'll probably enjoy yourself. Tickets were very reasonable, we sat in the cheapest seats as they were the only ones left and we had a good view. Everything is in Hungarian which we didn't understand but I preferred it that way and it was so entertaining. To the person who said in their review "you might want to learn Hungarian first, they didn't speak any other languages" - what do you expect?! The world does not revolve around English-speaking tourists. Getting into the spirit of another culture is what's fun about travelling.

An excellent staff. Very good place in the town Budapest. High level of artist. Every show has more stranger guest artist. The Circus has own orchestra and good clowns. The girls of the dancers are beautiful.
